Just a Quick Note–it looks like my passing out is due to a condition called syncope. It’s not a coronary condition. The triggers that everyone has to speed up or slow down their heartbeat are exaggerated in my case–specifically, my heartbeat can slow down a lot if I tense my diaphragm (lauging too hard, coughing too hard, getting up from a crunch position). If I continue to lose weight, the triggers could reset themselves. Pretty good news. I still have a test to go to–a tilt table test next Wednesday. Like the astronauts. Weird.
